Maine Farmland Trust Gallery in Belfast hits the art walk pavement with a new look and a new vision. The just-renovated bright and open gallery now boasts two floors of Maine art.  On Friday June 7, the first Belfast Art Walk of the season, MFT Gallery opens with its Summer Stable Show. This show celebrates a number of artists who have built ongoing relationships with the gallery. The public is invited to attend an artist’s reception from 5:30-8 p.m. Friday June 7. The show will be on display from June 7 – July 16.  “Not everybody who walks in understands the premise of our gallery,” says Anna Abaldo, gallery coordinator for Maine Farmland Trust. “The gallery functions as a way to engage people and raise funds for the Trust’s work, while celebrating agriculture through art. The artists that work with us are proud that any sales of their work help to support a good cause.” Featured in this year’s Summer Stable Show will be new works by Julie Crane, Adele Drake, Elizabeth Fraser, Leslie Harris, Lynn Karlin, Laurie Lofman Bellmore, Antonia Munroe, Elizabeth Ostrander, Kathleen Perelka, Charlotte Sawtelle, Leia Scotton and Sarah Wilde.
